英語で読む: A school for everybody

One person tried to make a list of features of a school that works for all children. Please have a look at it (if you are interested, you can find the whole article here; please be careful: it is really long!).
After reading the 12 points, have a look at the questions at the bottom of this post.


What would a school look like [if] it worked for all children?

by John Morefieldhere (excerpts)

A school that works for all children must be grounded in a value system of cooperation and relationships. (…) It means schools reflecting the following twelve characteristics:

1. Strong Leadership (…)
3. A Total School Environment of Pervasive Caring and Nurturing
4. All Adults are Responsible for All Children
5. Firm, Fair, Consistent, and Positive Discipline
6. High Expectations for All Children
7. A Staff That Believes That Teaching Is a Calling, a Vocation, Not Just a Job
8. A Multicultural Curriculum Woven Into the Daily Life of the School
(…)
10. A Belief In the Important Role of Parents (…)
12. Safe, Clean, and Aesthetically Pleasing School Environments

Questions:
– Which point do you think is the most important one? Why?
– You have probably attended a couple of schools in your life. Which school did you like most? Why?
– Which of the features above are, in your opinion, important for an English language school for adults?

After thinking about these questions, write an answer to ONE of them (5-10 sentences).
